    Wanda Help!!

    Still so frustrated about pool being so dirty. I don't really feel the pool blast is doing much. Wanting to buy a Wanda the Whale, concern is it won't be able to see if she is sitting on the bottom of the pool. Clorine levels are still really high not having to add much bleach each day at all. Brushing several times a day.

    Should I just order Wanda??

    your water makes me think you have a filteration problem? It just looks muddy.

    Are you performing a SLAM? SLAM

    I do know my filter isn't big enough. That is what it looks like when all stirred up. Looks pretty blue when not so everything is sitting on the bottom.

    Re: Wanda Help!!

    You could always drain half and refill to lower that CYA and the chlorine requirements to clean it up.

    Can you vacuum to waste and bypass the filter? Let it settle down and then vacuum slowly?

    Did you read the SLAM instructions about lowering the pH to 7.2 first...? SLAM

    You're right...that's way too big a job for your filter. Let it settle and vacuum every chance you get. Wanda is just gonna run it straight to your filter.

    I can backwash often when vacuuming. So not a real big deal. Just wasn't sure if could get her set on her feet to get the job done.

    Open to other suggestions. Show me a link to the best filter for the pool. I ultimately want a 30 ft pool.
